Luis Suarez might turn his hand at football administration once his playing days are over.
He tells MLSsoccer.com's ExtraTime Radio: "It was just funny. Nico and I, we talked fairly regularly during the process, in part because it took four months for the thing to play out.
"And he was in the US for the Copa America with Uruguay, obviously, and in hindsight that ended up being a big deciding factor for him, because he brought his wife and his little son and they got to see America and I think liked it and developed a comfort level with it.
"And I think that's what ultimately pushed them to make the leap, but I was talking and Nico's English is actually pretty, pretty good, but he isn't always so comfortable on the phone.
"You don't have body language, it's harder than it is straight to the face and so he just got frustrated that he couldn't understand everything that I'm saying.
"And so he says, 'Hold on, speak to my friend,' and I said, 'OK,' and I have no idea what's happening.
